J. A. Radaideh

Abstract: In this paper, the most important components of the Jordanian environment will be discussed the challenges it faces, and suggest ways to preserve it to remain honorable for current and future generations. Water is the most important environmental component and represents the greatest environmental challenge for Jordan, which suffers from a severe scarcity of water resources making Jordan the second-lowest country in water availability per capita worldwide. Water scarcity is one of the biggest challenges to sustainable development in Jordan. Wastewater pollution accompanied by lack of proper administration is further reasons for limiting the availability of usable water. Depletion of groundwater represents another challenge impacting the quantity and quality of most groundwater sources. Emphasis should be concentrated on the conservation of water, reclamation of wastewater, agriculturally productive land, and the quality of air, of which, the contamination or loss of them would bring rapid and significant improvement or deterioration to Jordan.

Keywords: Environmental components of Jordan, water scarcity, pollution. Wastewater, Bio-solids
